A new high school for Newcastle


Novoschool is currently completing the appropriate processes to be a registered school in 2025  We are working with the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) to ensure that everything is in place for the new year.

What kind of school is this?

Opening in 2025 for Year 7, 8 and 9, and growing to Yr 12 in the years following.


Novoschool will offer small classes, family friendly hours, and personalised learning plans for every young person.
It is a school for curious learners. 

Novoschool will offer a small, progressive, student centred option for Newcastle families.


“Creativity is as important as literacy.”

Sir Ken Robinson

What makes us different?

Study what you are interested in.

A space designed with you, for you.

Learning in and outside of the classroom.


The learning program at Novoschool includes all required curriculum for NSW schools. However, the learning program is designed with the young person at the centre. Each student will have their own learning plan, with significant opportunities to learn about what they are interested in.

We will not look like a traditional school. Learners will co-design their own learning spaces, allowing for individual preferences and tastes.

Novoschool will be open from 7:30am until 5pm to give more time in a safe space for those that need it.

An urban setting not only lets us use the city as our campus, but the learning program includes significant time working with local groups and businesses. This will include visits and internships, allowing learners a deeper knowledge of their areas of interest.

Novoschool acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands in our area, the Awabakal and Worimi Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
